Date:2009

Short Description:This policy brief provides recommendations for improving developmental education practices and policies to meet future workforce needs.
Annotation:Estimates suggest that 60 percent of first-time community college students who enroll directly from high school do not have the basic academic skills needed to successfully complete college-level courses.

This policy brief provides recommendations for improving developmental education practices and policies to meet future workforce needs.
